I am running Ubuntu 12.04 on my computer. Yesterday I tried to change the splash screen according to the instructions here here.Then I installed gdm. After that I restarted the computer and the splash screen was changed. I enabled automatic login. Then I restarted again and went into windows 7 and again came back to Ubuntu.
This time Ubuntu was stuck up at a black screen with the following message:
Ubuntu 12.04 ....*starting virtualBox kernel modules [OK] *stopping cold plug devices [OK] [OK]*Stopping log initial device creation [OK]*Starting configure network device security [OK]*Starting save udev log and update rules [OK]*starting configure virtual network devices [OK]*Stopping configure virtual network devices [OK]*Stopping save udev log and update rules [OK] *Starting Network connection manager wicd *Starting the winbind daemon winbind [OK]S aned disabled:edit /etc/default/saned [OK]S tarting HWActivator *[done] *Starting TiMidity++ALSA midi emulation...

I have reinstalled Ubuntu now, but I just want to know what caused the problem.
